• WWE Being Sold To ESPN & FOX By Mid-May?

Vince McMahon has always been open to the idea of selling the company as he has been in a “never say never” situation about it.
During his earnings call last week, McMahon talked about the possibility of selling the WWE Network to FOX or ESPN.
However, WrestlingNewsco recently reached out to their source, which claimed that there’s no truth to what Mantell is claiming.
